Street racer ploughs into crowd

`An angry mob of drag racers turned on police after an illegal street racer careered into a crowd of spectators in Sydney last night.
Up to 30 people lay injured on the road and footpath as punches were thrown and officers shoved.

Dozens of police raced to the scene in South Strathfield to help bring the 50-strong crowd under control.

One of the first officers to arrive at the scene radioed for urgent back up, telling the radio operator: “The crowd has turned on us.” [..]

The melee continued early this morning outside St George hospital as the injured arrived in ambulances for treatment.’
